After exploring the Eastern Caribbean for several years on their 34-foot Creekmore, Connie McBride, her husband, and their 16-year-old son sailed away from their adopted home of St. Croix, west across the Caribbean to Bocas del Toro, Panama. What they found there will delight the reader as the archipelago comes alive in Eurisko Sails West: A Year in Panama. Howler monkeys, red frogs, and sloths in the jungle are accompanied by a symphony of parrots, oro pendula, toucans, and macaws.
"I would dislike this author in real life."
The Path to Now is a history book dating back to the Mayflower, centered around the lives of Al's family, with stories told as he heard them around the dinner table. It includes personal memories of Alfred Geiger's 85 years, from his relief work in Poland after World War II to farming the family land. Al shares his triumphs, fears, and heartaches: crosses burned on his family's dairy farm during the Civil Rights Movement, a double-first cousin murdered his parents in their sleep, and his daughter overdosed after years of battling with drugs.
